Hi, This is my first visit to your blog. We are considering CC for September and I am curious to know the ages of your kids and your beginning experiences with CC. I have a 6 yr old and almost 4 yr old. My hesitation is will it allow us to continue Story of the World and our Charlotte Mason science for next year? We actually school year around, I just wonder how much time the CC memorization of triviums will take and can I supplement with what I am already committed to?
Hi. Thanks for stopping by. We had a great time this year with CC. We did not use it as our PRIMARY curriculum but as a supplement. My daughter was 6 when we started (1st grade) and my son is 2. He will begin when he was 4. I feel that the kids really enjoyed it and got a lot out of CC. The memorization is about 15 minutes of our day each day, we use the art and music as our primary, and we simply use the history as extra. We get library books about anything that is of interest. We use the science as primary and do Apologia that goes along with the theme. We do CM, year 1 next year with HUFI and therefore study World History and American History so this year the American History was a little more because of the CC and the geography is great, we use the maps etc as our home focus. We didn’t spend a lot of review time on the Timeline cards last year. Haven’t decided if we will do more of that. This year they are including songs to help with Timeline memorization so that is helpful. We did a LOT of memorization studying in the car with the CDs, that gave us extra each week. If you have more questions, I’m happy to answer them, just message me on Facebook, Adventures in Homeschooling, and we can discuss more particulars if you would like. Thanks again and good luck. Oh, and SOTW is recommended reading with CC and there are corresponding vol and pg numbers that correspond with the weekly memorization, in case that helps.
